Sabang, Puerto Galera: White Beach, Resort, Best Things to Do

Puerto Galera
Our group, Batang Hamog Mountaineers, usually make sure to participate in any Freedom-related activities to celebrate the freedom that was proclaimed on June 12, 1898. This year, just to be out of our comfort zone we organized a Freedom Dive held in Sabang, Puerto Galera, Mindoro, which is one of the best diving spots in the Philippines. We all know that the Philippines is composed of more than seven thousand islands and are surrounded by water so scuba diving is just one of the must tried water activities.

The Big Apple Resort, a great place to stay
Their scuba training was held at the pool area of Big Apple Resort, one of the cheapest resort in Sabang, Puerto Galera and the place where we had our overnight stay. Aside from their scuba facility, Big Apple has a good ambiance inside because of their landscape with trees and flowers (look at the photo above). Our rooms are clean, with cable tv, shower room with water heater, mini-ref, cabinet, sofa and terrace.

The White Beach is definitely the top tourist spot.

Night swimming and Night life.
After diving, rested for more than an hour then walked by the beach with the sun set and visited different sides of Sabang.  After the tiring activities for the day, we had our dinner and socials by the pool. We were the only group occupying the area so taking photos and chitchatting was not a problem. For our dinner, we ordered from the resort's menu and were served by friendly waiters.

Isang maligayang Araw ng Kalayaan sa inyong lahat! Naging masaya ang aming pagbisita sa Sabang kahit hindi lahat nakasama. Ito ang patunay na kahit isa o dalawang beses lang kaming nagkakasama sa isang taon, kaya naming sulitin at bawiin ang mga panahong di kami magkasama. Sa July naman mangyayari ang taunang Anibersaryo ng Batang Hamog Mountaineers. Alam kong mas maraming miyembro ang aming makakasama. Looking forward to our 8th Year Anniversary.
